>>10226612>hahaha okay you realize that an enormous amount of people just stopped going to school after high school back then right?
And yet the world didn't implode. How has college education helped, if grades are plummeting and people are becoming more stupid?>graduation rates across the nation for the high school level have pretty much never been higher?
So why all the bitching that grades are going down and people are becoming stupid?>Just cause a smaller number of people back then were succeeding
Unlike today, right? More and more wealth isn't being pooled around a few rich people. It's all evening out, thanks to the department of education.>if you eliminate the dep. of ed its going to be up to the parents to educate their kids through choice.
Are you saying there were no standards for education before 1979? At all?>the purpose of public education is to raise the national average
Are you saying there were no public schools in the US before 1979?
